  • BEVERLY CARTER: Family sues her employer.
The family of Beverly Carter has sued Crye-Leike, the real estate company for which she worked when she was slain, for not training her adequately to keep her safe.

Thanks to news partner KARK for turning up this legal action.

Carter was abducted and killed in September 2014 after meeting a couple who had arranged a fake home tour with her. Arron Lewis is serving a life sentence for the slaying. His former wife, Crystal Lowery, testified for the prosecution and got a 30-year sentence.

A suit filed for her estate by her husband, Carl Carter Sr., and two children, Carl Jr. and Chad, noted that two people had been convicted.

However, Crye-Leike has not been held responsible for its part in this tragedy. Crye-Leike was well aware of the life-threatening dangers Mrs. Carter faced in the real estate industry, and had the duty to provide Mrs. Carter with the necessary tools, guidance, skills, information, awareness, consulting, training, support and technology to keep her safe. Defendants failed in this regard, and as a result, Mrs. Carter's life ended much too soon.
The suit was filed Sept. 29 by Bryce Brewer and indicates he'll seek assistance from a Dallas law firm. It asks for compensatory damages on account of negligence and her wrongful death. The defendant has not yet filed a formal response.
